From the national bestselling author—the new novel set in the “darkly fascinating world” (SF Site) of the Black Jewels.

Dena Nehele is a land decimated by its past. Once it was ruled by corrupt Queens who were wiped out when the land was cleansed of tainted Blood. Now, only one hundred Warlord Princes stand—without a leader and without hope.

Theran Grayhaven is the last of his line, desperate to find the key that reveals a treasure great enough to restore Dena Nehele. But first he needs to find a Queen who remembers the Blood's code of honor and lives by the Old Ways. The woman chosen to rule Dena Nehele, Lady Cassidy, is not beautiful and believes she is not strong. But she may be the only one able to convince bitter men to serve once again.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linette | 5/13/2013

    " Wow, First of all, I am really sad that Magnus had to die. I liked him more than Vartan. Lara has to teach Taj all he needs to know. Read this book-Don't skip out on it! It was fabulous. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 4/8/2013

    " Good story. This is probably my favorite Hetar book because of the love story between Kaliq and Lara. Kaliq seems much more... well, human (as much as possible, anyway) in this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nicole | 9/25/2012

    " I was wrong to think I could read a Beatrice Small book again. Flipped through this one enough to get what's going on, but all the characters seem superficial. They don't have enough depth to care about what's going on around and to them. Or so it seems to me, anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 7/8/2012

    " I have not read the series in a while and stumbled upon the 5th book in the Hetar series and I really enjoyed it. I became familiar once again to the characters in teh book and was introduced to some new ones. I hope there will be more to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 3/21/2011

    " So far, so good! I love how Bishop brings characters from the old stories into the new while also incorporating new characters as the main focus. It brings you into a new area of their world while also keeping the reader rooted in what they know from the original trilogy. "

    "

    " Theran could possibly have done with a little more work. On the whole loved it, as with the rest of her work to date. "
